Cardinals acquired OF Cedric Hunter from the Athletics for future considerations.

Hunter, a 2006 third-round pick, appeared in six games with the Padres last season and batted .255/.322/.358 with two homers, 33 RBI, nine stolen bases and a .680 OPS with San Diego's Triple-A affiliate. He has been assigned to Triple-A Memphis.

Athletics sent OF Cedric Hunter outright to Triple-A Sacramento.

Similar to Evan Scribner, Hunter was claimed off waivers from the Padres late last month. The 23-year-old made the Padres' Opening Day roster, but was sent back down the minors at the end after appearing in just six games. The 2006 third-round pick had an underwhelming .255/.322/.358 batting line over 81 games with Triple-A Tucson before suffering a season-ending groin injury in July.

Athletics claimed OF Cedric Hunter off waivers from the Padres.

Hunter made the Padres' Opening Day roster, but was sent back down to the minors in early April. The 2006 third-round pick had an underwhelming .255/.322/.358 batting line over 81 games at Triple-A Tucson this season. He'll likely have a tough time cracking the A's roster.

Cedric Hunter has earned a spot on the Padres' roster.

Hunter posted a fantastic .435/.481/.826 slash line in 23 at-bats this spring and clearly opened the right eyes within the organization. His power numbers haven't been great in the minors, but he has some speed and is a strong defender. The 23-year-old was a third-round pick in 2006 will act as a kind of utility outfielder.

Cedric Hunter doubled twice and scored twice as Double-A San Antonio beat a Padres split-squad 7-3 on Thursday.

It wasn't far away from being a Double-A versus Triple-A game, but the Padres did have Kevin Kouzmanoff, Chase Headley and Henry Blanco playing. The pitchers were all Triple-A guys. Hunter, who started in center field and hit third, was the best prospect in Double-A San Antonio's lineup. Absent was fellow outfield prospect Kellen Kulbacki, suggesting that he's lagging behind following offseason shoulder surgery.

Cedric Hunter homered in a third straight game Wednesday for Single-A Lake Elsinore.

Hunter didn't have a homer in 40 games this season before his sudden outburst. He has seven hits between the three games, and he's up to .328/.403/.422 for the season.

Cedric Hunter went 5-for-6 with two doubles Sunday for Single-A Lake Elsinore.

Hunter was arguably the Padres' best position prospect a year ago, but Chase Headley and Matt Antonelli blew past him then and others are threatening to overake him this year. The 20-year-old is hitting .317/.400/.375 in the California League. He makes a lot of contact and has pretty good speed, but he's not a true burner and it remains to be seen whether the power will come.
